“Involvement in philanthropy brings great responsibilities. But it is also a great privilege to be involved in activities which are aimed at enriching the communities in which we live.

Although far away geographically, we think of Israel and its people as being close and belonging to our extended community. In wanting to enrich "lives," we express our belief in the importance of a pluralist society which ultimately gives Israel its strength, hope, and vision".
